In a clash of cultures Red Bull Flying Bach turns the international classical music world upside down. World champion b-boy crew Flying Steps visualizes and revives Johann Sebastian Bach’s The Well-Tempered Clavier in a creative performance that combines classical music and urban culture. Note by note. Step by step. With piano, harpsichord and electronic beats.
Red Bull Flying Bach, is a one-of-a-kind, innovative adaptation of Johannes Sebastian Bach’s “Well-Tempered Clavier,” that breaks down the barriers between high society and urban culture. The story follows six dancers and one teacher, rehearsing for their big day. Arguments, fights, disappointments and delights — just like the highs and lows of the notes, the moods and steps of the dancers change constantly. But their teacher is pushing them, pushing the boundaries to make it work. As a mysterious woman enters the rehearsal room, the conflicts climax: contemporary dance meets breakdance, man meets woman, desire meets refusal, and arrogance meets curiosity.
